The college will remain CLOSED tomorrow (Friday 15 January 2021) due to adverse weather and the likelihood of ice.

Students due to attend the Derby Road campus tomorrow (specifically, those with an EHCP, disability, learning difficulty or other vulnerability, or children of key workers who have chosen to access the site) should log-on to Microsoft Teams for their timetabled online lessons. We will be back to normal on Monday (18 January 2021) for those students eligible to attend on site. College buses and special transport will operate as normal from Monday.

College announces new partnership with JTL

Posted: 08 December 2020

West Nottinghamshire College has announced its new partnership with JTL, the leading national training provider for electrical and plumbing and heating apprenticeships.

The partnership will enhance the learners’ experience and help meet the skills needs of employers.
The partnership will enhance the learners’ experience and help meet the skills needs of employers.

The partnership, which will focus on the delivery of electrical apprenticeships, will enhance the learners’ experience, as well as helping meet the skills needs of employers and, in turn, encourage greater local economic prosperity.

The college will be delivering the knowledge-based elements of the apprenticeship course, while JTL will work alongside the college to deliver the reviews, assessments and other aspects of the apprenticeship.

Each apprentice will be allocated a dedicated JTL training officer who will assist them through their learning process, as well as providing invaluable support to employers who have a JTL apprentice attending the college.

Principal and chief executive at West Nottinghamshire College, Andrew Cropley, said: “We are very excited about our partnership with JTL, which will combine the strength of the college in offering day-release training to our apprentices and JTL’s strength in delivering high-quality work-based learning.

"This means that our local employers will receive an even better service and experience for their budding electricians.

"The college has committed, through its strategic plan, to working in partnership with others to ensure that we meet the needs of our local communities. This is yet one more example of that strategic vision coming to life.”

JTL’s chief executive, Jon Graham, said: ‘‘We are delighted to be forming this new strategic relationship with West Nottinghamshire College.

"By bringing the strengths of both organisations together, I am confident that the new partnership will provide local young people with the opportunity to develop career-ready skills, and will also benefit local employers by giving them access to a home-grown talent pool.”
